Saffire Pro 40 on OS X 10.5?


I'm on a non-existent budget attempting to mix and match old equipment. I have an old iMac running OS X 10.5 (pre Intel) and was looking into buying the Focusrite Saffire Pro 40 to hobble into the digital age. I found some forums stating that the unit stopped working properly AFTER they'd upgraded from 10.5, but the system requirements on Sweetwater's page for the unit say I need OS X 10.9 or greater. Does anyone know who is correct, or if there are two versions of the same unit?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also, if anyone has suggestions of alternative interfaces. Only major requirements are Optical input and at least six XLR inputs.
